Allen Craig (STL) –
With Matt Holliday down with injury, Craig has seen a spike in his playing time and has made the most of things, going 8-for-23 over the past week. He has also put up 6 R, 3 HR and 6 RBI over that span.
Danny Espinosa (WAS)–
It's been a season of ups and downs for "Espy" but he has been hot as of late. After hitting 16 HR in the first half, he has cooled since the break with only 5 long balls. However, over the past 7 days, the Nationals second baseman has 7 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI and 1 SB.
Ben Revere (MIN) –The speedy Twins outfielder has been on a tear recently, going 17 for his last 37 AB (.459). Over the past week, Revere has come through with 3 R, 3 RBI and 4 SB (9 SB in September).
Colby Rasmus (TOR) –
Maybe Tony La Russa was onto something. With Toronto, Rasmus has put up a horrible slash line of .185/.216/.336 and has been particularly bad over the past week. He is only 2-26 with 1 R in the past 7 days.
Jon Jay (STL) –Rasmus' full time replacement in St. Louis, Jay has been equally inept at the dish of late. Over the past week, Jay has gone 3-for-24 with no counting stats.
Josh Willingham (OAK)–The Athletics' surprising big bopper has been punchless at the plate over the past week. With only 2 hits in 20 AB and producing a lobe RBI, Willingham is ending the season with a whimper.
